Well, after snow-blowing and shoveling 6" or so of snow yesterday, I went about my day, had a good one, and then in the evening found some time to hop on the bike trainer. I completed a cadence interval workout that goes like this:
After a five-minute warm-up at a cadence of 80-85 rpm, ramp it up to 100 rpm for 2.5 minutes and then take it down to 90 rpm for 2.5 minutes. Repeat this cycle seven times for a total of eight intervals (45 minutes).
The workout is simple and easy, given my current level of fitness. But the news here is that after two weeks of being very sick, then pretty sick, and then just plain-old sick--and very weak--I finally felt good and strong all the way to the end of this workout. It felt good to feel so good, and I look forward to getting back in the saddle at some point today.
And I look forward to NOT shoveling snow! God bless, hope you all have a good one.
